While playing around at a friend's ranch in 1979, I spotted this heavy, porcelain enameled metal 12" x 5.5" Telephone sign!
She said if I like it, I should take it with me!
So I did!
The new, simplified design was introduced in 1939 and was in official phone company use until 1969!
They could still be seen here and there well into the 1990s!
Thanks for that additional information, ttomtucker!
When I first saw it, it was covered with at least 25 years of road dirt
and had been carelessly smeared with off-white paint.
When I removed it, the opposite side was revealed as you see it now, unsullied!
I've always displayed it prominently!
It's printed on both sides, with the reverse showing the arrow pointing in the opposite direction.
